Supply Chain

 

Evaluate the supply chain to test performance under a range of different situations, events, and constraints.  Also focus on key areas including cost, capacity, equipment, inventory, transit time, and other areas, along with risks, bottlenecks, and their potential impacts.

  • A complete model of the supply chain was developed, including detailed data analysis.
  • The first 10 years of system ramp-up, through steady state, was represented and different scenarios configured for this period.
  • Results of the project identified >$10million in savings by reducing CapEx investment (storage and train sets).
  • Also determined the best timeframe to construct and deploy assets over 10 year period.
